Free Sightseeing Tours in Tehran

Free Sightseeing Tours in Tehran

Tehran Municipality’s tourism office has launched weekly sightseeing tours in walking and biking modes.

Tours in Tehran operate Thursdays free of charge. The plan is in line with TM’s efforts to curb air pollution and promote tourism in the metropolis.

Those interested can choose to surf the city on foot or join the biking group.

Experienced tour guides accompany the teams. According to the TM, the guides are adept in explaining the capital’s history.

The first tour was in Tehran District 12 to the southwest of the capital on April 18, the Persian-language Donya-e-Eqtesad reported

Head of the TM tourism office, Mehdi Seif, said the next round will be on April 25. Tourists will surf the historical sites in District 11 in the central-south part of the city. The timings are from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. free of charge.

“If the tours are welcomed by the people, it will become a permanent fixture of the capital covering more destinations,” he added.

Further information is available on the website

According to Seif, the plan is inspired by the “bus tour scheme” currently underway in Tehran.

The bus tour runs Fridays enabling the people to take short trips around the city and visit historical sites and key tourist areas.

I think losing your travel documents, money, and your phone in a foreign country is on the top place in the list of top things you must be scared of when you go abroad. You can google the list of the cities famous for their pickpockets and purse-snatchers. Now, if you’re coming to Iran, hearing the financial news in Iran might worry you a little; and in fact, the tourist centres and crowded areas are no exception in this case. But statistics show that Iran is almost a lot better and safer than other countries in this case. But, only in case you want to travel with peace of mind, keep these points in mind: • You don’t have carry your passport with you to everywhere you go; only a copy of that would suffice. No one usually asks for it. • You will need cash, but you shouldn’t carry all the cash you have with you. • I suggest you to put your eggs in different baskets, I mean split your money and put it in different places so in case you get robbed, you will have some money left. • It’t better to use bags and handbags instead of backpack in crowded places like bazaars; so you can always watch the zippers. • And always keep an eye on your phone!
